View Full Version : Using lipoly

I recently bought the Hyper Wing from wattage and wanted to know whether the motor supplied a 400 made by wattge would handle a 3 cell lipoly. Most of the motor that I own recommened using a battery that is 7.2~9.6v. Will it burn up the Motor?:confused:

Yes, it will lower the motor's lifespan. Some don't care because they are cheap. I'd go with a 2s pack or look at a brushless motor. I think it will be cheaper in the long run, since prices have been dropping on brushless escs and motors.

I agree with John. For myself I just used a three cell but the speed 400 motors didn't last long. However it was FUN while they lasted, talk about speed :D . Eventually went brushless. Once you go brushless you wont look back ;) .
